1 Flat­ten the im­age – al­most…

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I take my fi­nal im­age and flat­ten al­most all the Lay­ers that I cre­ated dur­ing the paint­ing process. The ex­cep­tion is the layer fea­tur­ing the bul­let cas­ings that are be­ing ejected from the ri­fle: I keep this sep­a­rate be­cause I want parts of my an­i­ma­tion to ap­pear be­hind the cas­ings. This should subtly in­di­cate a sense of depth to the viewer. The sizes of video files in­crease the more com­plex they be­come, so I re­duce my print-ready im­age down to some­thing more man­age­able (1,536x2,050px) and con­vert it to RGB.
